I thought so. I still think its a very nice gadget it only consumes about 28Kb bandwith (this is an average when you take a closer look it peaks to 64Kb every 2 seconds) and plays very smooth. When i try the shh redirect trick with rendevouz and use itunes the iTunes client is constantly reconnecting to refill the buffer.
I just installed slimserver 6.2.1, but its really slow and very memory intensive so to speak. I think my slug is going up in smoke when it is ready indexing my 40Gb mp3 dir 🙂 . I hope someone (mr Petzold maybe) will pick up the glove and do some more serious JAVA programming on the applet.
